Newbie's Top Ten Commands

Filed under
Linux

Steve Campbell was once a major presence in several newsgroups and mailing lists about the same time as I. This is where we made our acquaintance and later became good friends. He was a very talented musician as well as a tremendously quick linux study and all around general purpose NUT. He kept me in stitches. Steve may have disappeared from the web, but his music, linux contributions, and memories live on. He dropped out of sight when he got himself a real life (i.e. job, wife/girlfriend/fiance...). Dirty rat...

Without further ado:

This is it, the Moment all you newbies have been waiting for, this is the list of the top ten commands that every new linux user should learn about to save time, effort and usenet flames. It is not intended to be a full description of the commands, rather it is a guide to the power of Gnu/Linux with some immediately accessible examples to try out (something that most technical documents omit, but which I believe are essential in getting the ideas involved into virgin skulls).

5 of the Best Raspberry Pi Projects Out There

Raspberry Pi, when first launched about two years ago, became an instant phenomenon. After all, who could have thought of a $35 computer that lets you browse the web and does most of your office work? What is even more surprising is the reception it got from average users. Usually, one would expect a bare-minimum $35 board computer that runs Linux to be popular only among developers or geeks. However, as many as 100,000 Raspberry Pi units were sold on the day of its launch eventually selling more than 2.5 million units till date. Completely open-source, Raspberry Pi lets you do most of the basic tasks you'd normally do on a full-fledged desktop. You can browse the web, you can create documents, and you can even play music and watch videos. When it comes to desktop computers, Raspberry Pi is a veritable "Starter's Edition." Since its inception, the project has made common computing available to parts of the world where owning a desktop was once considered a luxury. Moreover, it has also spurred a flurry of interesting projects that take this tiny superboard to a whole new level. If you are ready to show your creative, geeky side, then read on as we cover some of the best Raspberry Pi projects out there. Read more
